The Low-luminosity Galaxy Population in the NGC 5044 Group

Detailed surface photometry for 79 (mostly dwarf) galaxies in the NGC 5044 Group area is analysed, revealing the existence of different morphologies among objects originally classified as early-type


Globular clusters are gravitationally bound stellar systems containing on the order of 105 stars. Due to the high stellar densities in the cores of these clusters, close encounters and even physical

Polarization Angular Spectra of Galactic Synchrotron Emission on Arcminute Scales

We study the angular power spectra of the polarized component of the Galactic synchrotron emission in the 28 deg2 test region of the Southern Galactic Plane Survey at 1.4 GHz. These data were

Tracing Star Formation in Cool Core Clusters with GALEX

We present recent results from a GALEX investigation of star formation in 16 cooling core clusters of galaxies, selected to span a broad range in both redshift and central cooling time. Initial

Wide Area X‐ray Surveys for AGN and Starburst Galaxies

While often the point sources in X‐ray surveys are dominated by AGN, with the high sensitivity of modern X‐ray telescopes such as Chandra and XMM‐Newton normal/starburst galaxies are also being

Analysis of Echelle Spectra of Young Stars in Corona Australis Cluster

Presented here is spectral analysis of six young stars from the Corona Australis region (hereafter CrA). The spectra used are in the visible and early near infrared range (roughly 3800 to 8900 Å)

Precise surface gravitites of A-type stars from Asteroseismology

δ Sct are one of the most abundant pulsating stars in our Galaxy. In addition, they have moderate to fast rotations and periods of several hours. That makes them the suitable targets for studying the

Star formation and mass assembly in high-redshift galaxies

Aims. The goal of this work is to infer the star formation properties and the mass assembly process of high redshift (0.3 ≤ z 0.3, the star formation rate is correlated well with stellar mass, and

Theoretical and observational studies of the central engines of active galactic nuclei

In Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) the luminosity is so intense that the effect of radiation pressure on a particle may exceed the gravitational attraction. It was shown that when such luminosities are

GOALS: The Great Observatories All-Sky LIRG Survey

The Great Observatories All-Sky LIRG Survey (GOALS ) combines data from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope, Chandra X-Ray Observatory, Hubble Space Telescope (HST), and Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX)
